It's a good place to go with friends. Tacoma is not the for meeting, the people are not good at talking to strangers. They are more comfortable with on line than person to person.

Great menu and happy hour bar menu. My wife & I usually dine there for lunch or dinner. They were very accommodating when we took our 4yo grandson there for lunch.

The bar/happy hour menu has a wide range that tastes good and cheap (grilled cheese and Thai Salad are good). But the regular food is disappointing and overpriced. I for how elegant they try to be they need to step it up...

Great food and super friendly, genuinely helpful, nice staff. I loved the ambience and decor. I was out with my sister and one of us had seafood and one steak. Both meals were really great. I especially lived the horseradish potatoes. Yum!!

This restaurant has maintained an extremely high level of service and quality for a number of years. I have had lunch, dinner and attended a reception at the Pacific Grill and the food was excellent and the staff was totally on the ball.

In the past have had a couple of negative experiences at this popular Tacoma spot. Last night we had a major turn around in experience. Met friends in the bar for a drink and food. Server was excellent, the food was delicious and they even reduced the volume of the very loud music with our thoughtful request. We'll go back... More
